yes indeed, we have to admire the good old days where there was much less pretence and far less embellishing

Subject: Wild Men...Great Film
Other than some creative/broken editing in the last 6 min. this film was great. A must watch. The only reason for the 4 star rather than a 5 was the editing at the end.
